Find a dietary assessment tool that can be used either generally or for a specific alteration in health.

When you have found your assessment tool, answer the following questions:

  • What is the purpose of this tool?
  • Do you believe that the purpose is fulfilled based on the questions being asked? Why?
  • In what ways does the tool account for the individual perceptions and needs of the client?
  • Is there a nutritional history included? What does it cover?
  • Is the tool easy to use? Why or why not?
  • Does the tool provide enough information to determine the next steps or interventions? Explain.

The writing assignment should be no more than two pages and APA Editorial Format must be used for citations and references. Attach a copy of the assessment tool.
